Bodybuilding is a personal development feat that few people manage to attain. This is because only the mentally strong are able to sculpt their body to the “perfect” form. Building your body entails much more than exercising as it is incredibly easy to give up on the entire program. When things get tough, you may start hearing that voice inside you asking why are you doing this? Is it worth it? If you do not have the mental strength, the answers to these two questions will lead you to abandon the fitness program. To build your body, therefore, you need a conviction, determination and motivation to achieve your goals. In that regard, the following tips might help you:
i) Give Yourself Time
If you are overweight or underweight, you should not rush things as you embark on your fitness journey. Ideally, you should tell yourself from the beginning that it takes time to build your body. For this reason, you should stay away from any weighing scales. Be sure to also avoid spending hours in front of the mirror checking out your muscles, or the lack of it. Increasing your muscles takes time.
ii) Make it Fun
Bodybuilding does not have to be all about pain, so drop the no pain no gain attitude. Take a couple of friends with you to the gym and have fun lifting weights.
